Malaysia Income Inequality World Ranking and by Continents

The Gini coefficient measures the inequality among values of a frequency distribution (for example levels of income). A Gini coefficient of zero expresses perfect equality where all values are the same (for example, where everyone has an exactly equal income). A Gini coefficient of one (100 on the percentile scale) expresses maximal inequality among values (for example where only one person has all the income).

Using this measure, Malaysia ranks 39th in the WORLD and is 3rd most unequal nation in ASIA! We have a huge GAP between the rich and poor. Our rich are very rich and our poor, very poor!
